I have a give away my chickens- I am in trouble with my town, as I do not have the land required to keep my chickens. However, my neighbors do, and I am going to give them my hens. I have 5 hens, and my neighbors have 12. They will have 17 when it's done. I"ve read that the best TIME to introduce new hens is at night, in the dark. This makes sense. What I am wondering is what is the best NUMBER to introduce at once. Should I introduce all 5 of mine to her 12 on the same night, or should I do it one or two at a time? Please comment if you have experience or ideas! I want my hens to have a new home that is peaceful and welcoming (as possible anyway).
